Fans of David Hasselhoff and/or obscene animation memorabilia, rejoice: “Big Dave,” a notorious 14-foot model of the Hoff, is up for auction, and it can be yours for only a million bucks (or possibly more).
Big Dave took his time to go public. He was built for 2004’s The Spongebob Squarepants Movie, a hybrid feature in which Hasselhoff has a cameo as himself. Lost on a beach, Spongebob and his friend Patrick Star hitch a ride on the Hoff’s back as he swims back to their home. Hence why the model is stretched out as if bodysurfing.
After the shoot wrapped, Hasselhoff claimed Big Dave after learning that nobody had any use for the thing. As he told GQ in 2011: “I’ve got it in my projection room. I don’t know what to do with it. It’s just sitting there, and it freaks the hell out of people. Eventually I’ll probably make a table out of it and put it in a restaurant somewhere.”
